Don't know how long I've been doing this blog. Guess it's been a couple of months, and I've really enjoyed it.
I've yapped about a lot of things but one thing I've neglected to do is tell more about my two partners in the endeavor of purchasing B.A.S.S, Jim Copeland and Don Logan.
Both of these gentlemen are going to play giant roles, when and if, we finalize the deal.
Both are extremely wise men who have been very successful in business. Don, the former head of Time Warner, and Jim, CEO of Deloitte & Touche (one of the largest accounting firms in the world).
You can research these two guys, and I hope you will; you'll gather a lot of impressive information about them. However, the one thing you're not likely to find out, is the one thing that will make you the most comfortable.
They love to bass fish.
Now, I'm smart enough to know that having a passion to catch bass doesn't necessarily translate into a successful business. However, take away that piece of the puzzle and you have a very intelligent man who doesn't relate to his customer. And yes, you are B.A.S.S. customers.
So, maybe liking to catch bass does play a role in getting this business to the right level ... actually, I'm counting on it.
Okay, in due time I promise to give you my take on Jim Copeland and Don Logan. However, for right now, I'm putting these writings on hold until all the dealing is finished and papers are signed.
As I said at the beginning, I've done this for two months now, and it has been all about "here's what I'd do — what would you do — how can we do it together" etc.
I really don't want to talk anymore. I want to get to work. There is so much to do, so many goals to reach, and we don't need to speculate and gab anymore.
I never have been into meetings or conference calls, etc. I guess they're important, but some people just seem to function around gathering and talking and that's not me.
This is a big week for our project. Things go as they're planned, and it will finalize.
I hope to stay in touch with everyone through this blog forever, but I'm going to be quiet until this thing is all wrapped up.
The next words you hear from me will be to say, "Done deal, let's go to work."
